Cherry-Almond Icebox Cookies

Rating: 3.5 stars 9
This is my Grandmother's recipe, at least 50 years old, a classic cherry almond icebox cookie that I turned into a bar cookie. I also dip or drizzle white chocolate on the cooled cookies to make them a little more fancy for Christmas cookie exchanges. But it's delicious either way!

Rich, lemon-flavored cookies.

Citrus Shortbread Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 357
This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, one of the best cooks I know...and given that we're from south Louisiana, that's saying something. With the chopped up dried cranberries, these are as pretty as they are tasty.

Venice High School Cherry Butter Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 108
I made these cookies waaay back when in Home Economics class at Venice High School in L.A., California. With a shortbread texture blended with walnuts and cherries, these are certainly unforgettable. I usually bake them around Christmas, but they are super any time of year. They are particularly great with a hot cup of coffee, I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!

Almond Shortbread II

Rating: 4 stars 11
Quick, easy almond shortbread cookies that can be prepared ahead of time and taken from the fridge to bake in only 15 minutes. Melt in the mouth. You can decorate the shortbread with almond slivers instead of whole almonds, if you like.
